Lions' Ezekiel Ansah: Shut down for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lions placed Ansah (shoulder) on injured reserve Tuesday.

The transaction spells an end to Ansah's season and possibly his time in Detroit. Since posting a career-high 14.5 sacks in 2015, Ansah has missed time each of the subsequent three seasons, sitting out 14 games in total. Though Ansah was still effective at getting after the passer when he was able to take the field, the Lions might prefer to invest elsewhere across the roster rather than paying up to retain the 29-year-old, who will become a free agent in March.

Lions' Ezekiel Ansah: Carted off Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah (shoulder) is out for the remainder of Sunday's game against Arizona, Scott Bordow of The Athletic reports.

Ansah suffered the injury in the second quarter of Sunday's game, and seemed to be in serious pain. He was carted to the locker room and has been deemed out for the rest of the game. In his stead, Eric Lee will likely fill in at defensive end.

Lions' Ezekiel Ansah: Set for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah (shoulder) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Ansah has been battling the shoulder issue all season but he was able to practice fully Friday to avoid the questionable tag. The 29-year-old saw a season-high 41 defensive snaps last Sunday against the Rams, and he'll hopefully be able to continue ramping up his workload at Arizona.

Lions' Ezekiel Ansah: Will play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah (shoulder) is active for Thursday's game against the Bears, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Ansah will play through the shoulder issue that kept him limited in practice throughout the week, though fellow defensive end Kerry Hyder (coach's decision) will not be available to provide depth in the event of a setback.

Lions' Ezekiel Ansah: Listed as questionable for Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah (shoulder) carries the questionable tag for Thursday's matchup with the Bears, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Ansah logged three limited practices this week and played through this injury Sunday against the Panthers. In that game, Ansah was used primarily as a situational pass rusher and recorded two tackles (one solo) and a sack over 25 defensive snaps. If Ansah misses time Thursday, Kerry Hyder or Da'Shawn Hand could see more snaps.
